Creative Thinking & Innovation Methods:

A workshop by Tom Greenbaum at Los Alamos Science Fest

The most important tools that creative people (and people who manage creative people) can use are those that enable them to effectively enable the creative process from idea generation to innovative application or artwork creation. These are Thinking Tools that may benefit artist and scientist alike.

How does creativity happen?

How can you help it happen?

Join a group of artists, scientists, and creatives to discuss

  • Random Entry Idea Generator
  • Managing Creativity and Innovation
  • John Kao's Innovation Manifesto
  • Paradoxical Characteristics of Creative Groups
  • Three Components of Creativity
  • Capturing, Harvesting, Treating and Assessing Ideas

...and more!

This free event will be lead by Tom Greenbaum, an innovator whose career has been at the heart of art and technology. He worked for years at Intel as a Senior Software Engineer, and later became Director of the Intel Innovation Center, staying active in the art community, supporting artistsand cultural events through Intel and actively practicing digital art.
